I have sympathy. Round here, it only paused for about a month, and some people were still looking a bit anxious, putting their stuffed bins out in hope (it was publicised, but some people never heard and never looked it up).

Far too much brown in yours, DavPaz. I need grass cuttings.

That's the white bags. They're pre-decomposed!

Whuuuuuut! I feel your pain. Will bonfire pollution ascend? I was smoked out of the garden a couple of times on the warm days. Local council have suggested that with a respiratory infection around, perhaps hold back on the bonfires, but still people were reluctant to put piles of detritus in a corner of their ample gardens. There again, given the scattering of people who kept their garden waste bins out, a fair number of people had no idea about guidance and suspension anyway.

I was soaking my cardboard in water with washing up liquid for about a few weeks, stripping and stirring it daily until it’s a pulpy mess and then mixing it with the garden waste and shoving it in the brown bin. Cardboard makes good compost.

I love a story with a happy ending.

Don't forget to fill your neighbours bins too! Do it now, before they notice that they've been collected. They'll just presume they haven't been picked up.

I'm now imagining sat as a demented moonshine brewer in Mississippi.

If they catch you, just deny everything and accuse them of being anti-fascist.

The wheels have fallen off my green bin! The bin men didn't collect it!

What excitement!
